operation odyssey door signal a major change in america's foreign policy in that region? tonight the great middle east debate for some of the top minds in the country, both sides of the aisle. senator lindsay graham, donald trump. congressman anthony wiener, p.j. crowley. former libyan ambassador, general richard myers. we begin tonight with cnn's ni k robertson live from tripoli. did anyone see the speech where you are? >> reporter: no one will have seen it on state television and there's been no comment on state television about it. they have chosen to broadcast a number of other things, reruns of political analysts putting forth the government position. but plenty of people you can be sure will have watched it on channels like cnn. they watch the international news organizations here, particularly anyone in the opposition because they don't trust the state media here because they don't get the full picture. but it's the middle of the night here so we really don't have reaction from anyone at the moment. certainly you can count on the fact that gadhafi will feel that he's dodged the bull
seemed possibly to be the admission by president obama that america would now be actively henning these rebels and presumably arming them in the process. what did you make of that development in this story? >> reporter: if that's the way this is going to take shape over the coming weeks and months, it's clearly going to be a very protracted affair, because the opposition really isn't in a place to face off against gadhafi's army, even if you neutralize the army, their heavy weapons, their superiority, and advantage on the battlefield, what would seem to be serving -- gadhafi's armed the tribes loyal to him so you see people with more weapons on gadhafi's side and will use them against the rebels. this will turn to a wider civil war where even gadhafi can't predict what's going to happen. if the united states and others are going to arm the rebels, he's going to have to keep the pressure up on the rebels and he's going to have to arm the population that will support him. those oil installations that the rebels have just taken over the last few days piers. >> nic robertson, i want t
that america is heavily involved but doesn't really want anyone to know that. which seems to be a rather pointless exercise in terms of the p.r. here, isn't it? >> no someone pretending that america is not involved. the announcement of the strategy indicated that we've been providing capability that we are uniquely qualified to provide. but as the days go by, more and more sorties will be carried out by air forces of other countries, more operations will be taken over, our role will become somewhat diminished. still engaged, still involved. obviously, helping to coordinate, but i think that's the transition we're watching. >> it's a very unusual position for american military to find itself in here. no one talking to all the generals in the last few days has really been clear what the mission is to start with. we hear it's costing america a billion dollars on air strikes, which the country can really hardly afford. i mean, isn't it time for some real clarity? and dare i say it, leadership here? >> well, i have to disagree with you there. i think the mission is quite clear. and what the p
? that if america waited, something like iraq, a similar thing would have happened there and you would have avoided the bloodshed and the controversy which reading your fascinating book, you know it's stained many reputations. iraq in particular. when you see tunisia, egypt, libya, do you not wish you'd wade perhaps? >> i think quite the contrary iraq. he's a man who killed hundred of thousands of his own people. the burial grounds are just filled with mass graves. the chances of a popular revolt overthrowing the saddam hussein regime, i think, is very modest. he is -- was a vicious dictator, and i think he would have put it down viciously. now what you're seeing in other places is something quite different. the other hand, what you do have mixed emotions in this sense, you think of the cedar revolution in lebanon and who's in charge there, hezbollah, a terrorist organization, that is not representative of the major fraction of the population. you worry in these other countries, who knows what's going to happen in libya if in fact gadhafi is thrown out. who knows what's going to happen in egypt? >>
's lacking from you on "america's got talented." >> you were tweeting her butt is big. >> her friends are here now. >> i love her big butt. i want to cut to the quick now. we've never had five before. what do you make of charlie sheen? let's have a little chat about sheen. julie? >> let me just say this. >> turn to you because your husband happens to run cbs and just fired him. >> let me say this. minutes ago, backstage in your green room, lea asked me would this be a good time to ask to bring back "the king of queens." i said, lea, no comment. >> you don't get involved in this. what's your personal view of charlie? >> i have no comment on it. >> no view of him? >> i do but i have no view on the show about it. >> aren't you allowed to talk about it? no? >> i just think it would be -- it wouldn't be right for any of us to comment about it. i think it's -- >> don't be ridiculous! >> i'm not being ridiculous. >> it's the biggest story in town. >> not to us. we haven't talked about it not once. >> none of you talked about charlie sheen? >> we have not spoken about him on the show not once
are very grateful to people, america, for extending all the support. the president and secretary clinton has called. the secretaries have issued the statements and a lot of people, politicians as well as people, ngos have been extending cooperation to us. and people are saying they would do everything they can do. and sharing their friendship, and we are very grateful to that. >> well, ambassador, i think the whole world sends its thoughts and condolences and prayers to you and the people of japan. >> yes, yes. >> on this terrible day. we hope that -- >> yes, thank you very much. not only the united states but 50 countries and regions have said that they would like to help us as well, and we are very grateful to that. and we really would like to see that this will be taken care of as soon as possible, yes. >> ambassador, thank you very much indeed for your time. does japan have only hours to avert a nuclear meltdown. >> i'll ask the experts. >>> and coming up, from the christmas tsunami to last year's quake in chile to the latest disaster in japan, what's behind the string of natural cat
behind america's nuclear problem, why are you confident this is the right way to go? >> the main thing i've said is not that, but it's way too early to know. we don't have the facts and we need to base our future decisions on facts and science, not on ideology or hysteria. so that's the main thing i've said. the second thing i've said is, look, we have an ongoing crisis going on in japan. and we should first focus on that ongoing crisis and help and pray for the japanese. unfortunately, some folks around here want to use any ongoing crisis to immediately try to advance their pre-existing political agenda rather than first deal with the crisis and secondly actually gather the facts. >> you can hardly blame them. what we've seen here is not only one of the biggest affects that we've ever seen. a terrible tsunami. and some very serious damage to these nuclear reactors in japan. and it's pretty obvious, isn't it, that in america people are going to say, hieng, what aboant lots of reactors, many by the sea. what's going to happen if the same thing happens here? >> it's an obvious question. i
america and the allied forces with america it shall how do they declare victory? >> it's a great question. i raised the question yesterday. if i were still in uniform or still with the cia, the first question i would ask of the political leadership of the country is how do i know when i am done? i don't think the question has been adequately answered to date. >> also, finally, general. it seems to me that the military not just of america but other countries like britain, france and so on are already getting very stretched. we see that iraq has operations going on. afghanistan clearly has. how far can the american military go if, say, these revolutions spread to places like yemen, syria and other countries? where does it stop? >> that brings up a great question, piers. if we decide to intervene in libya, why not yemen or anywhere else? that's the first important question. i think -- and admiral mu will, len was clear in discussing the first days and hours of the operation. we have adequate forces to do what we have been asked to do to date. frankly, we are using air and naval power at the
of the old guard, we're going to do thing our way now? if that is the case, is this good for america and the west? >> well, to your question about whether it's anti-american or whether it's the people here themselves, it is the people in this region themselves. it's the young people. nowhere do we hear anything about the foreign policy, about the traditional angst that this region has, for instance, over palestinians and israelis and blaming the u.s. policy for all of this. nowhere is it about u.s. foreign policy. it is all about their desires. in fact, they say even in benghazi, which is held by the opposition, we do not want any foreign intervention. this is our movement. this is our moment. and they're very, very clear about that. >> as always, a brilliant insight into what's going on. thank you very much. >> thank you, piers. >>> coming up, is hollywood's top dog, harvey weinstein, his reaction to his win and charlie sheen's meltdown. yellowbook has always been good for business. but these days you need more than the book. you need website development, 1-on-1 marketing advice, se
. >> we want to welcome our viewers in north america as well. it is 1:00 p.m. in japan. and there seems to be no letup in the fear that's gripping the disaster stricken nation. tokyo is now requesting help from the u.s. military in this emergency. we want to bring you all we know so far. japanese officials say part of a nuclear reactor containment vessel at the fukushima daiichi power plant may be damaged. they say a breach in the containment vessel in reactor number three may be what's caused a white cloud of smoke or steam to rise above the power plant. they can't confirm either way on that. now, already, there have been several explosions and fires at the plant since friday's massive earthquake and tsunami. workers have been trying to stop a nuclear meltdown by cooling those damaged reactors from which radiation has escaped. however, officials say workers have now suspended their operations, and have been evacuated. authorities also say radiation readings at fukushima daiichi have been fluctuating by the hour. the nuclear watch dogs say radiation briefly reached 167 times the average
in japan and what does it mean for nuclear plants in america, for example, if a similar thing was to happen here? >> there's a beginning of nuclear renaissance in construction all over asia and to some extent in the united states. if there's a major incident that is not good for the nuclear construction business, the plants that are running in this country will probably continue to run without difficulty. i don't know what effect it will have. one of the complications is after an earthquake it's hard to move people. it's hard to move in all the problems you need, all the equipment you need. >> professor, matthew, thank you very much for your time. we will to wait and see what happens in that plan. it is a very worrying time for japan and the world. what if the unthinkable was to happen here in america? is this country prepared for such a disaster? i'll ask the mayor of los angeles next. e nature valley. granola bars made with crunchy oats and pure honey. nature valley -- 100% natural. 100% delicious. people have all kinds natuof retirement questions.l. no problem. td ameritrade has all kind
and powerful forces, one, this was a homegrown revolution. it wasn't done by america. it wasn't done by cia. it wasn't done by russia. this was by egyptians for egyptians, number one, number two, this was based on universal principles. these are people who wanted freedom, dignity and the right to run their own lives. it wasn't about down with israel or down with america. it was about up with egypt and up with me and lastly, this revolution in egypt has a missed narrative. over 400 of these young people died in tahrir square fighting for this opportunity. they've lost more kids in tahrir fighting for democracy than the egyptian army has lost in 27 years. you put together a homegrown movement based on universal principles with this kind of myth narrative of fighting for democracy and dying for it and you put it in egypt which is the center of the arab world and you have a very powerful force. and that's why i wrote at the time, this is not las vegas, what happens in egypt does not stay in egypt and as long as what happens in egypt has an upward, positive slope to it, you are going to see this
compunction for america, for the west generally to get in there and sort this out? >> i think it's one of those cases where the moral compunction as you said and the -- and the interests cohere. i don't think it's a problem so i wouldn't rule out firm action against libya. i think that's something that should be considered. i'm sure it is being considered. >> if america decided to take military action, would you support that? >> certainly wouldn't be against it. >> moving to saw, some fascinating damts -- to saudi arabia, some fascinating developments in bahrain. appears that saudi forces have been in there. a pretty surprising development, isn't it? what do you make of that? >> i don't think it's surprising at all. i think they're concerned with a possible iranian takeover of bahrain which would put iran effectively within spitting distance of the arabian peninsula. saudi arabia's working to protect its own interests, but there is a very large global interest in making sure that the world's oil wells, that the largest reserves of the world's oil supply do not fall into iranian or pro-

america in a position of acting as some kind of backup rather than front line assault weapon. and most of the attacking appears to be being done by american forces anyway. why are they pretending that they're not leading this? >> you know what, that's a great question. and one that i wonder about, as well. as you see what's happening on the ground, as you see the interviews with general hamm, the u.s. commander, africa commander, talk about this, clearly he's in charge right now. and presumably and everybody says will hand that off to a coalition, to nato, to be in charge at some point. secretary gates reiterated that again today. but in the meantime, it's -- it -- it seems to be an awkward situation for the military. on the other hand, no-fly zones, that's something we've done before. again, that's the tactic. that's not the end game. that's not the strategy. and that has jet to be revealed, i think. >> finally, general myers, if you were running the armed forces in this operation, what would be the one thing you would want clarity on from president obama? >> well, i think any person
from far away here in latin america. he's gotten some criticism for continuing with this trip. but they're saying with a secure communication he has he is staying on top of it, wolf. >> how do they square this, ed, that the u.n. security council resolution that was passed the other day, 1973 specifically says -- only talks about protecting civilians in libya but for a few weeks now, the president, the secretary of state have said the u.s. goal is to get rid of gadhafi, gadhafi must go. we keep hearing that from the president, from the secretary of state. how do they explain that difference? >> reporter: it's a difficult balance, you're absolutely right. and they've got two answers and one is that the u.n. security council resolution said, enforce the no-fly zone, but also said use all means necessary to protect those civilians. that's why you have the bombing campaign. but very clearly the u.n. resolution stops short of saying regime change. it did not say you could directly take out moammar gadhafi. and so what they're saying from the president on down is that basically it's up to the
they simply don't know. they're just too overwhelmed with other distractions. should america now be getting more forcefully involved over there to try to get proper answers? >> in the soviet union, the government was not transparent during the chernobyl crisis. they should have asked for more help. they should have asked for it earlier. at three mile island, the utility swore that they had the capacity to be able to handle that emergency, but ultimately president carter had to order in federal experts in order to help to shut down that plant before it became a catastrophe. obviously the same thing is happening in japan. there is overconfidence which is leading to, in my opinion, an elk exasbation of the catastrophe. i would hope the japanese government would be open to having the most brilliant nuclear physicist in the country, in the world coming in and helping them to close down this disaster so that they can focus on the tsunami-related disaster that have affected the lives of the families all across the northern part of japan. but i understand it because it's human nature to say that yo

day happening in america? >> well, probably the one thing that you've heard time and time again from your guests is how resilient the japanese population is. part of which is they have annual drills, particularly for earthquakes. there's a high level of citizen participation. we have an opportunity here in the united states, particularly in the central u.s. to practice the 100-year anniversary of the new madrid earthquake on april 28th, a u.s. earthquake exercise that focuses on personal preparedness. and i think this goes back to what they know in japan as with all of these types of hazards with earthquakes being a high hazard there, is citizen participation and preparedness adds to the ability of government to focus their response on the greatest needs while many people are able to take care of themselves that are not in this area of the greatest devastation. >> i want to bring in now dr. erwin redlander, director of the center for preparedness at columbia university. you heard what we just heard there from craig fugate. do you agree with him that we're in a relatively strong posit
-- until a few days ago -- the highest-paid star on television in america and therefore the world. the number one. the show has been ripping up the ratings. >> yeah. >> there is no sensible reason why this show has been suspended, maybe canceled. >> sure. >> it's all about you and your private life. and there are two schools of thought. half the people i talked to say charlie should behave better, it doesn't reflect well on him and cbs to behave in this way. my view, for what it's worth, and i said this to you this morning -- >> it's worth a lot. >> my view is i think you're entitled to behave how the hell you like. as long as you don't in the old fashioned sense scare the horses and the children and you turn up to work on time and do your job in a professional way, which clearly the ratings suggest you were, i don't get what the problem's been here. obviously i know what your view would be. but articulate why you think this is completely wrong. >> well, i mean, i can sort of understand why they felt like they had to intervene when they did. you know, it was -- i think it was a tu
bureau? wow. this could turn into a miss america answer pretty quickly. wow. what do i do if i'm the adjustment bureau? well, i would -- i would make a lot of changes, i think, in the way things are -- are running right now. i'd get into the supreme court and i'd change their mind about the citizens united decision. i'd change obama's mind about a number of things, education. >> what would you make him do? >> you know, my mother's a professor of early childhood education. like a lot of educators, she's terrified about what's going on and this kind of marketplace-based reform that people kind of come out of it with a business attitude. or kind of approaching education which really -- it's really the wrong way to approach it. and find -- >> you're the adjustment bureau chief. you haven't got a hat but -- >> i haven't got the hat. >> give us some idea of the powers you would have -- i'll show a clip from the movie. give you time to gather earth-changing thoughts. >> who the hell are you guys? >> we are the people who make sure things happen according to plan. my name's richardson.
